Canney Welcomes Collection Plans for Removing Stock Piles of Farm Tyres

I welcome the fact that Minister Denis Naughten is making €700,000 available to remove stock piles of tyres from farms. The collection point for tyres in the West is Athenry Mart, Co. Galway and the date for collection is Saturday the 13th of October. The tyres will be collected by the Irish Farm Film Producers Group and they have agreed to the removal of tyres from farms through four Bring Centre collection points. Farmers must bring their herd numbers to these collection centres for verification purposes. Full details are available on
‘I would encourage all farmers who have stock piles of tyres to bring them to Athenry and they will be disposed of, free of charge to the farmer. The vast majority of tyres collected will be recycled in Ireland which will support Irish jobs’
